Why we love Bloomingdale’s
Extra personal preference center
Never underestimate the power of a strong preference center: they give this brand explicit shopper data about what consumers want and how they want to hear from you. Bloomingdale’s preference center allows customers to select their sizes for different types of clothing, favorite designers, and the local store they usually shop at so emails and notifications can be targeted to their unique interests. The personalized preference center also lets users decide how they receive information from the brand (email, app, notification, SMS message, or any combination of channels) and whether or not they get in-store receipts delivered digitally.
In-store and digital connection
This legendary department store makes shopping more convenient for customers by linking its traditional brick-and-mortar experience with its digital presence. Customers have the ability to see which products are in stock at their preferred store before placing an order from their mobile device for in-store or curbside pickup.
Turning channels into opportunities
Bloomingdale’s covers all engagement points through its cross-channel approach. Customers can learn about sales and special events via email, app notifications, in-app messaging, or SMS messages—a communication suite only 19% of retail brands in this Index offer—to meet customers where they’re most active and likely to convert.
